Again, it was a bad analogy...I was watching Dante's Peak when I wrote it! Listen...I don't generally ever speak of Hell and by all means...I'm not trying to instill fear you...I gave the analogy in response to an earlier question and it was simply to show my perception...it was a bad analogy.<quoted text>That is not the situation we find ourselves in. I tried to turn your lava analogy into something more appropriate, but really, it's just not a good analogy in the first place. We are not dealing with a simple forked road. We are dealing with questions of life and death - there are no definitive answers either way, and absolutely no reason for me to listen to any polite suggestions as to which god I should worship. There is simply no evidence, at all, that your god exists, and the christian tactic of trying to instill the fear of hell in non-believers doesn't work on me. There is no reason for me to believe in the "lava pit," and what "evidence" you do have is the same evidence claimed by the followers of every other religion out there.
And if I were to worship any god, you can be sure it wouldn't be the god of the bible - that book is absurd, and describes a being I wouldn't even want to speak to, let alone be judged by.
Either way, what you do in your life and what you believe is your choice. I'm not judging you. I don't mind debating evolution...or just about any issue, but I'm not on here to condemn anyone to hell or pass judgment on anyone...just to set the record the straight.
